A noteworthy review of Greek Mythology from Library Media Connection on May 1, 2013

This large series provides young readers with background information on many of the Olympians. Each book begins with the same illustrated introduction, and describes the primary responsibilities and characteristics of the featured god or goddess. Each also contains a Greek mythology family tree, and provides their Roman counterparts. The series will prepare the reader for more in-depth works. Libraries needing simplified works on Greek mythology should definitely include this series. Bibliography. Websites. Index.

A noteworthy review of Greek Mythology from School Library Journal on December 1, 2012

Although Temple tries to summarize several myths in connection to each of the selected gods in a way that will hold the attention of readers, these complex tales are sometimes overly simplified. For example, In Hera, the author states that Heracles was brought to Olympus to live; most sources that mention a stay on Olympus give him only a brief stop there. Temple does offer insightful historical information about Greek rituals, worship practices, and architecture, and a helpful ‘Principal Gods of Greek Mythology’ family tree will give readers new to the myths a handy reference to sort out the characters. Squier’s illustrations are eye-catching.
